administration and the obama administration for political reasons, they have not wanted to release that regulation. they want to digitize the private records and make them accessible to driver's license- issuing agencies in any other agency that needs it. it is the one piece of real idea that has not been done and the state's complaint is a cost issue and i would love to hear a mess cohen's response. for us on may 9/11 commission, checking accounts of that fraud of the birth certificate as one of the most vital things you can do. eve has done a tremendous job digitizing those records. what exactly are the issues with of the states and with amba in terms of not implementing that piece of real idea? >> i will give you a delaware perspective. it is extremely complicated. we have any number of jurisdictions issuing driver's license and i.d. cards. there is so many levels of technology involved with the 14,000 different types of birth certificates. in delaware, we are now just getting moving on the delaware eve records. we have a population of 900,000 and it has been difficult. i don't

our covers are good. so we talk about what obama is doing in areas where he cannot get legislation through congress. it is important. it tells republicans in the house that this is a place where perhaps you can make a difference. regulations are only issued pursuant to legislation, so legislation comes regulation. republicans could stop or override some of these regulations, and maybe some democrats will go along. the epa and some other regulations are pretty hostile to small business, the energy production. and others that democrats are not really on board. alternative energy agenda that the obama administration is pursuing as well. and on health care, there are particular parts of obamacare that congress may be able to slow down or stop. the piece is mostly a report on what the administration is doing, but it gives guidance to congress. one thing republicans in congress needs to think about is what they can accomplish in by sized chunks. there will not change health care in a conservative direction in the next four years or reform entitlements. can they accomplish a few good thin
